In the Gradle GUI, when running a target using 'Execute Ignoring Dependencies', the execution fails since there seems to be a space missing between the task name and the -a option.

Do you have some more details? A stack trace? Gradle version? Does -a work from the command-line with the same build?

Comment by Etienne Studer [ 20/Oct/10 ]

It's how the command is executed. The space is missing between task name and -a.

The Gradle GUI has been deprecated and is scheduled to be removed with Gradle 4.0. We are not going to work on this issue anymore.
